Don't Buy a Carpet

Music and Lyrics © 2015 Tom Toce (Retrograde Music)

Don't buy a carpet for half a room
Half a room
Half a room
Don't buy a carpet for half a room
On the other half
the floor will be bare.

You see, the surface grows twice as fast,
Twice as fast
Nice and fast
One side may double;
Don't be aghast
That the area grows just like –
The area grows just like –
The area grows like –
The square.

Variance grows like area
Area grows like variance
Area grows like variance
Variance grows like area!

[REPEAT OPENING VERSE]
